Texas Gov. Abbott shows completed section of state-made border wall, pledges to protect state's sovereignty

Abbott authorized the building of the wall six months ago, and then authorized $ 3 billion funding for the Texas Facilities Commission to bolster the building effort. Abbott stressed that the wall stands on either state land or land that private owners agreed to hand over for the wall. 

“Texas is taking what truly is unprecedented action: A state to build a wall on our border, to safeguard the sovereignty of our state and of our nation,” Abbott said during Saturday’s press conference

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Land Commissioner George P. Bush, and Texas Facilities Commissioner Steven Alvis watch a section of the border wall go up following Saturday's press conference.
